Diet Update & Quorn Tacos

Uncategorized | September 15, 2007 | By

Lost 3lbs!!! I am really pleased, I haven’t felt too hungry and enjoyed all the Rosemary Conley recipes. Even more pleased really because I had to have a working lunch with mayonnaise laden sandwiches and also took my boss for lunch when she came to visit – fortunately she is also on a diet.

I had these Quorn Tacos last night, they were really nice.

Quorn Tacos
Serves 4
331 calories, 6.3g fat per serving

8 corn tortillas
1 red onion
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1 x 300g pack Quorn mince
1-2 tsps vegetable stock powder
1-2 fresh chilies, sliced
1 red pepper, seeded and diced
1 tbsp chopped fresh oregano (I used dried)
1 x 400g can chopped tomatoes
300ml (1/2pint) passata
50g (20s) low-fat Cheddar
chopped coriander to garnish

1. Take the oven rack shelf out of the oven and drape the tortillas over each metal bar. Preheat the oven to 200C, 400F, Gas Mark 6.
2. Place the rack and tortillas in the oven for 8-10 mins until crisp. Set Tortillas aside in an ovenproof dish.
3. Heat a non-stick pan and dry-fry the onion and garlic. Add the mince and cook for 1-2 minutes. Add the stock powder, chillies, red peeper oregano, tomatoes and passata, and mix well. Simmer for 15-20 minutes to reduce.
4. Spoon a portion of the filling into each taco shell and grate the cheese on top. Bake near the top of the oven for 10 minutes to melt the cheese. Garnish and serve with salad.
